The Rev. Stacey Steck told the Escazú Christian Fellowship congregation that he would be stepping down as pastor before the end of the year, the church council said Tuesday as it announced a search for a replacement.
Steck has been pastor of the English-language religious group for nine years. He is married to Flora Calderón-Steck.
Steck holds a bachelor’s in communication from The American University in Washington, D.C., and a master’s of divinity degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He previously served in St. Cloud, Minnesota, according to an online biography.
